Especially for you creative types, or those who appreciate their work. The movie is, Séraphine (yes, on Instant Netflix).

You get to see an artist, Séraphine Louis de Senlis, go through the process of creating art, the consequences and opportunities of others seeing her art, and the final product, her work. The cinematography is breathtaking and there is not one false note in the film. Yolande Moreau is a wonder. She becomes Séraphine.

Here is a slide show of some of her work,

And the trailer,

So, do you have a summer move rec.?

My daughter and I just saw this. Very gripping and well done - it was almost too much to take in, especially the main twist (one plus one can’t equal one?) Didn’t know anything about it beforehand, other than your recommendation. A stirring and educational experience that really got us thinking - I am glad to have shared it with her.

Pretty heavy. We didnt know much about it prior to seeing it either. Remarkable how gripping the film was, high intensity from beginning to end. So much to discuss afterwards...

Well, I feel kind of... uncultured: "Smokey and the Bandit" was the first film that came to my mind.

Every time I pop a Coors, the Banquet Beer, one of the kids always starts in with "bum-bum-bum eastbound and down, loaded up and truckin'..."

I think I'll got get one now. "bum-bum..."

Heh, Heh, Heh.

Well, if it's any consolation, I brought a "sixer" of banquet beer to work with me and that got me hummin the tune on the way over here.

"bum-bum-bum..."

This past Saturday on guys weekend with my college buds I saw Primer. It was the movie that has most made me think and rethink the theme in quite some time. Time travel and the grandfather paradox is the basis. The cinematography is wonderful. It was a Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize winner in 2004. Clocking in at 77 minutes I took the time to watch it again and the concept and intricacies were peeled back and understood a bit more. Definite to start a heady ethical and scientific/physics discussion.

From the film website:

PRIMER is set in the industrial park/suburban tract-home fringes of an unnamed contemporary city where two young engineers, Abe and Aaron, are members of a small group of men who work by day for a large corporation while conducting extracurricular experiments on their own time in a garage. While tweaking their current project, a device that reduces the apparent mass of any object placed inside it by blocking gravitational pull, they accidentally discover that it has some highly unexpected capabilities--ones that could enable them to do and to have seemingly anything they want. Taking advantage of this unique opportunity is the first challenge they face. Dealing with the consequences is the next.

Mentioned this one before.

Visually stunning and spiritually "out there". Also on netflix for streaming. In the first 11 mintues Gaspar Noe creates one of the most accurate video representations of what a serious "trip" is like. Watching this was like re-living some parts of my past. Also reinforced the decision I made to leave that stuff behind. Fascinating look at a view of what happens after you die (inspired by the Tibetan Book Of The Dead). After watching the entire film you will be mentally exhausted.

"...standing on a pile of skulls"

Makes me think of a Frank Frazetta poster and that I heard they are making a remake of Conan The Barbarian. Hopefully this one wont suck. Sorry Arnold, the first one was beyond weak.

I don't get the impression many of my fellow forumites are into horror movies but Stake Land is the best one I've seen in a very long time...very comfortable in its B movie skin.

If you care about art at all, especially spoofing the bullshit part of art celebrity, I recommend "Exit through the gift shop"- Is the creation of the arist at the end of this almost documentary another Bansky prank? - You decide.

Here's a review of it from my friend Curt at Creative Loafing Atlanta"

For the unflinching , ""City of Life and Death" .
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q90R13aMwbA
One of the most powerful movies I have ever seen . Not for the emotionally squeamish , "City of Life and Death" deals with the battle for and the occupation of Nanking ; one of the great atrocities, and tragedies in human history . Director Lu Churn manages to, while showing the utterly debased, cruelty of the Japanese army, also shows them as individual , varied humans .
Filmed in black and white, if s a beautiful ( but not self conscious arty )thing to see, if one can call the subject matter "beautiful". Filled with incredible historical detail, and care ( "where did they get those Japanese tankd?")is also has maybe the best combat scenes I have seen ( forget "Private Ryan").

Just caught Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt again a few nights ago...What a great movie that is. Just a classic. Here's a taste of that classic Dinner scene...
